Jim Strader Files Federal Lawsuit Against F&W
As reported today by Wave3, Jim Strader has filed a lawsuit against Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. The lawsuit basically says that F&W has blackballed him for disagreeing with and speaking out about F&W policy. According to Strader, F&W ordered their folks not to attend the Jim Strader Hunting and Fishing Expo in February. Strader says his civil rights were violated and that commisioner Jonathan Gassett defamed him in a F&W newsletter. I get the newsletter but did not see that in it. I will have to go back and review. As I've stated many times before, I'm not a big fan of Strader necessarily and don't typically enjoy his radio show but I will have to say that he's one of the very few outdoorsman with a voice in the state of Kentucky and this lawsuit, if valid, is very interesting.
